If more people are poor then Democrats get more votes so does this mean Democrats have an incentive to make more people poor weather they follow it or not?

Posted by: xhammy

Democrats get votes when more people are poor and Republicans get votes when people are wealthy. SO if the democrats can increase the poverty then they can get more votes so even if you are a democrat do you think they have an incentive to increase poverty.

Really look sometime at the demographics of the votes. I don't think it's going to break down as easily as you think it does.

I wonder if you could use the reverse logic here? If people with higher incomes tend to vote republican, wouldn't republicans have an incentive to get more people with higher incomes?

I'm pretty sure Democrats don't want more poor people, just like everyone else, so no.

I disagree with the entire premise. Republicans are not on the whole people with higher incomes. In a narrow band, The stereotype works, but isn't nearly as broad as you would think. Additionally what it shows is that the Republicans are narrow focus. If your primary concern is people within incomes from 100 to 500 K, and within that barely have a majority, your party is some real problems.

Democrats don't necessarily want more poor people, they want more poor people dependent on the government, which essentially keeps them poor and gives more security to their power. They get votes because they are good at convincing people dependent on the government that the reason they are poor and dependent on hand outs is because of rich republicans, and if they could just get more money from rich republicans and give it to the poor people, then they wouldn't be poor anymore. We have shifted into a society where you are considered a hero if you are a victim and the only reason anyone is poor is because they have been victimized or put upon by society by being put into a life situation 100% beyond your control. Personal choices and behavior don't matter anymore. If there is ever an inequality if outcome between two people, it's because the richer one exploited the poorer one somehow.
